About Child Find

With changing time in education, the Oklahoma State Department of Education would like to inform parents about Child Find opportunities. 

Child Find is a public awareness activity to locate, identify, and evaluate children ages 3 through 21 who may have disabilities defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)( of 2004. A child with a disability means a child evaluated and determined eligible by an eligibility team for Special Education and related services. This is in accordance with the Policies and procedures of Special Education as set forth by the state of Oklahoma and federal guidelines for eligibility under at least one of the following categories:

  • Autism
  • Blindess/Visual Impairment 
  • Deaf/Hearing Impairment
  • Developmental Delay
  • Emotionally Disturbed
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Learning Disability
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Other Health Impairments
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

In Oklahoma we require that Child Find apply to all children who are suspected of having a disability and in need of Special Education and related services.

We want to make everyone aware of the services that is proved to children with disabilities free of charge throughout the state of Oklahoma. 

If you live within the boundaries of Wagoner Public Schools and would like more information on Child Find, please contact the Special Education Director at (918) 485-4046.
